If you have a dental emergency please call Machesney Dental Studio to schedule a virtual consult with Dr. Munshi. We will try our best to get you in as soon as possible and provide necessary treatment.


Toothache

Taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) (if you are not allergic) can help alleviate pain. You can apply ice 10-20 minutes every hour for severe pain.

Mouth sore

Applying an over-the-counter medicine, like Orajel or campho-phenique, will pose as a bandage-like film over the sore.

Bleeding after an extraction

If bleeding is substantial, you can place a thick gauze pad over the extraction site, while applying pressure. If bleeding still ensues, you can soak a tea bag in water, put it inside a thin gauze pad, and apply pressure for one full hour.

Bitten tongue or lip

Applying ice or pressure to the area will most likely decrease swelling or bleeding. If the laceration is deep (larger than ¼ inch) or if the pain persists, please call our McKinney dentists.

Fractured jaw

Do not move your jaw. Seek immediate medical help at a hospital emergency room.

Tooth knocked out

If you cannot put the tooth back in place and hold it there while rushing to come see us, then you can put it in a cup of milk or water, and come see us immediately.

Fractured tooth

Place a piece of soft wax where the chipped area is, and then schedule an appointment with us. Place the pieces of your chipped tooth in a cup of milk, or in water with a pinch of salt.
